Hello everyone,
there is a classification of PMS based on color-color diagram as class 0, class I and class II. can some one please explain more about this classification or provide me with some useful link. I am trying to plot color-color diagram of an Open cluster using Wise Band data.

That applies to main sequence stars, not protostars.

no, its applicable to PMS. see the appendix portion of the paper by Koenig et.al(2012).

@vrinda - please post a better reference - meaning we did not happen to read the paper you have in mind, so how can we read it, too?

This paper?

Koenig, X. P. and Leisawitz, D. T. and Benford, D. J. and Rebull, L. M. and Padgett, D. L. and Assef, R. J. (2012) Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer Observations of the Evolution of Massive Star-forming Regions. Astrophysical Journal, 744 (2). p. 130. ISSN 0004-637X

There is a paper by Koenig (2008) http://arxiv.org/abs/0808.3284 that is referenced by:
